Another, from Sheffield, shared an account of the terrible flooding that the city has experienced over the past few days, saying: "Here in Sheffield on Thursday was a nightmare for a lot of people, floods all over the place. We are lucky to live in quite a hilly area outside the city, although the fields often flood and some of the lower areas but generally are OK. Take care Eamonn and have a nice weekend."

On Thursday, dozens of people found themselves trapped in a Sheffield shopping centre after torrential rain flooded parts of the city. Many shoppers were forced to spent the night in the centre's dining area and had to buy blankets to keep warm, according to The Guardian. Floods did not breach the building, but the surrounding area was left at a standstill after torrential flooding blocked roads and prevented shoppers from travelling home. 

Meadowhall shopping centre told guests: "For anyone who prefers to stay with us in the centre they are very welcome to do so. We encourage everyone to stay safe in these extreme weather conditions."
